Heidi Adamson is officially a member of the Pocatello City Council.
At Thursday’s regular council meeting, Adamson was confirmed for the post by a vote of the current Council. Following the vote, she took the oath of office and then made her way up to the dais to her seat among the rest of the council.
“I’ve always been interested in government and I felt strongly that now would be a good time to get involved,” Adamson said. “My two children are old enough now that I have the time to dedicate to public service and I look forward to doing what I can to make our city an even better place to live, work, and play.”
Adamson owns a local business, Five Star Property Management. She is a graduate of Highland High School and following her career as a Ram, she attended Idaho State University and received a Bachelor of Arts in History.
“It’s exciting to see a new face show an interest in being a part of City government,” said Mayor Brian Blad. “I like her ideas and I look forward to the fresh perspective she will bring to the Council.”
“There’s been some positive growth and development in the community recently,” Adamson said. “I’d like to see that continue.”
She takes the seat vacated by Craig Cooper who resigned after accepting a position on the Bannock County Commission. Adamson will fulfill the remainder of Cooper’s term which ends January 2018. Twenty-seven citizens submitted applications for the job and Adamson was selected by Mayor Brian Blad after interviewing 9 of the candidates.
Heidi and her husband, Dannis, have two sons Grant and Gabe.
